We were attracted to this restaurant by its colorful facade. The inside has a lot of fun artwork to look at while you eat. It's very upbeat! The servers were helpful in making decisions. We had the onion tangles for an appetizer. They are served with roumelaide sauce and were delicious. My kids had shrimp Po Boys. Sandwiches are served... More

My family of 18 ate dinner here after my sister's college graduation. Although there was a mix-up in their group reservations, the staff still found a way to accommodate my family. Our server was very attentive and polite. The menu provides a wide variety of options and no one had any complaints about the food. The floor was pretty filthy,... More

This menu seemed to have something for everyone so we decided to stop in. A pleasant man sent us upstairs for a table but when we got there, we were told we couldn't sit there. Despite having many empty tables, we were told that they were all reserved. As a party of 5, they tried to shove us into a... More

I went to King Street Blues during a short “girls’ trip” weekend in the area. We went on a Friday night, and were a group of 8. I called ahead and they gave us a time 45 minutes from when I called, which was fine because we walked to the location from a hotel several blocks away. We did arrive... More

We visited on a whim on a Saturday night. We were surprised that the restaurant was almost empty at 6:00 pm. The decor is bright, fun and funky. We sat at a table for two on the second floor by a window, good for people watching down the street. Noticed a couple of ants on the window sill. We loved... More

The decor is jazzy and the menu consistently good with large portions. It's a fun treat to enjoy the room, the lively people and food that will stick to your ribs. The restaurant is located near the center of Old Town and easy to find. No doubt about it - you will enjoy this place

My partner and I found this place whilst walking through Alexandria. It s funky looking building and drew to our intrigued side. Inside very much followed suit, quirky, funky and fun. The bar tender was friendly and welcoming. I opted for a BBQ beef brisket burger, this arrived with homemade fries, which were delicious and perfectly cooked, and coleslaw, a... More

I was here with a large group and we had pre-ordered our meals. The results were mediocre. I had a veggie burger that was just meh. This place is supposed to be about the blues, but there was no music playing. Our waitress seemed perturbed with us, no matter how much I tried to help her.
